basically their is no configuration file for this you can use stsadm command to get portnumber

stsadm -o getadminport

if you want use it using object model kindly use

SPAdministrationWebApplication details are provide at link below (this will give you url from which you can extract the port number

        SPAdministrationWebApplication caWebApp = Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPAdministrationWebApplication.Local;
   url = caWebApp.Sites[0].Url;
